“They did a good job of bottling us up,” Canadiens captain Brian Gionta said.
“We weren’t sharp coming out of our own end. We didn’t really get much clean. So therefore we weren’t able to get much established in the neutral zone.
“I thought they won the neutral zone battle and it shows in the score,” Gionta added.
